“The Associated Press has identified the man as 98-year-old Michael Karkoc, from Minneapolis.”
Poland officials have stated they do not care what the age of Karkoc is, they will continue seeking his extradition to be tried with war crimes.
“Polish authorities said they have confirmed “100 percent” that Michael Karkoc was a former commander of an SS-led unit that burned Polish villages and killed civilians in 1944 during World War II“
Karkoc’s family has argued these are baseless claims and plan to fight them tooth and nail. German officials in the past attempted to try him, but dropped the case once he failed several medical exams showing incompetency.
If convicted the hashtag punch Nazis would take on an entirely literal justification.
